Let X be a compact metrizable abelian group and u={un} be a sequence in its dual group X̂. Set su(X)={x:(un,x)→1} and T0H={(zn)εT∞:zn→1}. Let G be a subgroup of X. We prove that G=su(X) for some u iff it can be represented as some dually closed subgroup Gu of ClXGxT0H. In particular, su(X) is polishable. Let u={un} be a T-sequence. Denote by (X̂,u) the group X̂ equipped with the finest group topology in which un→0. It is proved that (X̂,u)̂=Gu and n(X̂,u)=su(X)⊥. We also prove that the group generated by a Kronecker set cannot be characterized.
